Date:

Paul Millsap (hip) will play Friday vs. the Bucks.

Millsap has played in two straight games and looked good doing so, averaging 22.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 1.5 blocks. Millsap admitted earlier this week that he is currently playing through pain, but should obviously still be locked into starting lineups.
Dec 9 - 1:04 PM

Paul Millsap (left hip soreness) is probable for Friday against the Bucks.

Millsap has said he has to fight through the pain of his current injury, but he's fully expected to play. He looked good on Wednesday with 21 points and a full line on Wednesday.
Dec 8 - 5:07 PM

Paul Millsap (hip) scored 21 points on 8-of-12 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs during Wednesday's 103-95 win vs. the Heat, adding nine boards, two assists, four steals and three blocks in 32 minutes.

Millsap admitted before the game that his hip still hurts, saying that he's "just playing through and seeing what happens. Hopefully, getting better." That's not entirely encouraging for fantasy owners, but tonight's vintage-Sapper production was a terrific indication that he's feeling better. There's no reason to think he's in imminent danger of missing games.
Dec 7 - 10:57 PM

Paul Millsap (hip) said he will fight through the pain, and he fully intends to play Wednesday vs. the Heat.

"It’s sore," Millsap said after practice Tuesday. "It’s something that probably will have to be dealt with. By that I mean just playing through and see what happens. Hopefully, getting better." Millsap is being listed as probable for tonight's game, and after returning from his three-game stint on the sidelines Monday night and going through Tuesday's practice, there's no reason to believe he'll miss Wednesday's game. Get him active.
Dec 7 - 9:32 AM

Paul Millsap (hip) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Heat.

Millsap returned from a three-game absence on Monday and put up 24 points, five boards, four assists, three steals and a triple in 39 minutes, so there's no reason to believe he'll miss Wednesday's game.
Dec 6 - 5:00 PM

Paul Millsap returned from his hip injury on Monday and played well, racking up 24 points, five rebounds, four assists, three steals and a 3-pointer on 8-of-14 shooting.

Finally. Millsap wasn't playing well before his injury and owners in weekly leagues had a tough decision to make with him. He came through tonight and looked like vintage Millsap, so hopefully he's over his injury and his knee is also feeling better. As for the Hawks, they are reeling, losers of seven straight games and 10 of their last 11.
Dec 5 - 10:53 PM

Paul Millsap (hip) will start vs. the Thunder on Monday, moving Mike Muscala to the bench.

He made it through warmups just fine and is returning after a three-game absence. We haven't heard about any restrictions for Millsap, so season-long owners should make sure he's active.
Dec 5 - 6:41 PM

Paul Millsap (hip) is a game-time call on Monday vs. the Thunder.

Millsap has missed the last three games for the Hawks, but he's truly day-to-day and the Hawks didn't even feel the need to give him an MRI which is a very good sign. If Millsap is ultimately ruled out Monday, Mike Muscala could possibly make his second straight start at PF, but he won't be a great option outside of deeper leagues.
Dec 5 - 11:45 AM

Paul Millsap (hip) will not play against the Pistons on Friday and is also out for Saturday against the Raptors.

These DNPs will be his second and third games out of the lineup. Despite going scoreless on Wednesday, Mike Muscala should get another start while Mike Scott could also see a few extra minutes than his four on Wednesday. Millsap's injury doesn't sound serious and it may be more about pain tolerance, so he could make it back for Monday against the Thunder.
Dec 2 - 6:32 PM

Paul Millsap is listed as questionable to play against the Pistons on Friday.

The Hawks are on a back-to-back set with another game in Toronto on Saturday. Millsap was playing through his hip injury for about a week before he missed Wednesday against the Suns. He'll likely be a game-time call for the 8:00 start. If he can't go, Mike Muscala should play close to 30 minutes with a few more minutes going to Mike Scott (knee), assuming Scott is a go.
Dec 1 - 5:02 PM

Paul Millsap (hip) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday and Mike Muscala will start in his place.

He went through some warmups in Phoenix, but the Hawks will just hold him out. Millsap suffered the injury last week and has been playing through it. He is only day-to-day and has a decent chance to play this weekend. Besides a big bump to Muscala, Mike Scott should benefit.
Nov 30 - 8:22 PM

Paul Millsap (left hip) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Suns.

Millsap will go through his pregame routine before making an official determination on his status for tonight's game, but if he's out, Mike Muscala would draw the start and he'd definitely be on the DFS radar. Stay tuned.
Nov 30 - 7:39 PM

Paul Millsap (left hip) is questionable to face the Suns on Wednesday.

The injury occurred against the Jazz last week, but he was able to play through it against the Warriors on Monday. Millsap has struggled with his shot lately and is down to just 43.8 percent from the field on the year. Hopefully he can play tonight in a very favorable matchup for him. If he is out, Mike Scott (knee) should get a big bump in his debut while Mike Muscala also benefits.
Nov 30 - 3:08 PM

Paul Millsap shot 3-of-11 from the field on Monday vs. the Warriors, finishing with 14 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, one steal, two triples and three turnovers in 35 minutes.

Millsap hasn't been living up to his second-round ADP and it's mostly due to his FG percentage -- He has shot less than 50 percent from the field in six straight games and he's now shooting just 43.7 percent from the field on the season. He's a career 49.7 percent shooter and we fully expect him to turn things around, so there's still a nice buy-low window here.
